Watch: Erasure Gives 'A Little Respect' to LGBT Youth in New Video


(Apologies - posted this without the video earlier)

Via Joe comes this uplifting re-do of Erasure's "A Little Respect" from Andy Bell and LGBT youth at the Hetrick Martin Institute, along with some other cameos.

"Proceeds from the track will be donated to The Hetrick-Martin Institute, the home of the Harvey Milk High School, in New York, and the True Colors Fund. The Hetrick-Martin Institute, the nation's oldest and largest LGBTQ youth service organization, provides a safe and supportive environment to all young people -- regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity so that they can achieve their full potential. The HMI Redux features a youth chorus from the Hetrick-Martin Institute who also appear in the music video, directed by filmmaker Jason Stein."

Love, love, love.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

The track is available on iTunes.

  3. Love this song....and this version reminds me of the days when the chorus is sung just as loud and proud on every dancefloor...

  4. I like it

    thankfully Vince Clarke didn't destroy the melody as he has done on several of his other reworkings/remixes

    the whole video is cute

    think I saw Bebe from RuPaul's Drag Race on there

  5. I think the middle guy in purple in the screen shot is a gay porn star called Marko or Miguel or something. He is kinda the best.

  6. A classic --

    from a challenging time - when the gay community was responding to it's challenges with great positive energy

    before POZ men promoted unsafe sex as something grand -- before meth destroyed so many lives -- when safe and sane sex was CELEBRATED by the gay community - not just it's public faces

    a new generation can bring those days back

  7. Glad to see Andy looking OK; the past couple times I've seen him he wasn't looking so great. Always loved him.

  8. i met Andy in a dive of a leather bar in 1998 when i was a 23 y/o twink whoring it up in London.He was funny, we were both plastered, and he signed the only thing i had on me which was my passport. I still have that passport today, and you can barely decipher his signature. Good times Andy!
